Scott, I am very confused on what to do with cardio to lose body fat. I was not happy with the way I looked at a Memorial Day BBQ and need to get myself in gear. What do you suggest for a nutrition plan to lose body fat quickly as summer will not last forever? ~ Connie
Connie, short steady state cardio sessions following training sessions called Afterburners are excellent for driving faster rates of body fat loss. Hundreds of clients used this protocol last spring and summer to reach very low levels of body fat. The conditions created by a weight training or fat burning interval sprint session are perfect for a 10 to 20 minute Afterburner to maximize rates of body fat loss with the right recovery scenarios in place. Afterburners work synergistically with the 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Nutrition Plan which has helped thousands of clients Outsmart up to 10 Pounds of Body Fat in Just Three Weeks.

Burning UP Stored Carbohydrate
A weight training session or fat burning interval depletes the stored carbohydrate within muscles called glycogen. The body is very comfortable with using stored glycogen as a fuel source during exercise and daily activities. Burning up the stored glycogen during a training session can allow the Afterburner to utilize more stored fat as fuel. A low carbohydrate intake within the 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Nutrition Plan enables the body to have a low glycogen status which makes fat burning around the clock much easier especially with consistent exercise.
Grass fed beef options work perfectly with the 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Nutrition Plan. A nutrition plan rich with organic proteins, dietary fats and green vegetables works synergistically with Afterburners to burn body fat fast.
Traditional Cardio Approaches Do Not Work
The traditional approach to cardio with a steady state walk to nowhere is not effective for body fat loss. Many people gravitate towards this approach because it does not take much effort and is largely mindless in regards to planning. Just pick a venue and a time length and it is that simple, until of course people begin to see increases in stubborn body fat and loss of muscle which are the collective kisses of death for physique development.
Weight Training before Afterburners
A well-designed weight training session such as the Strip 18 program are 30 to 45 minutes and perfectly placed before Afterburners. Strip 18 Fat Loss Weight training sessions pack a huge amount of high quality work into a short period of time. These sessions boost fat burning hormones as well as metabolism for the next 48 hours following each workout provided the right recovery conditions are in place. The 10 to 20 minute Afterburners operate as a cool down in addition to attacking stored fat.
Fat Burning Intervals Before Afterburners
Performing fat burning intervals requires a great deal of effort. Periods of sprints using a number of venues followed by timed periods at a slower pace repeated several times make up a fat burning interval work. Clients use multiple venues including kayaking, stationary bikes, running outside, jump ropes, stair climbers, swimming and more. Following a warm up, fat burning interval sessions can only last twenty to thirty minutes due to the levels of difficulty.
